Lost Lantern Whiskey

2022 Single Cask #1: Smooth Ambler

Spirit of the Appalachians, Take 2

This is the second of a pair of bourbon casks that we selected from Smooth Ambler Spirits in Maxwelton, West Virginia. Smooth Ambler has long been on the vanguard of sourcing and blending whiskey with transparency and integrity. They’ve also been distilling and aging their own whiskey as they forge a new whiskey tradition in the West Virginia mountains. 

We have always admired Smooth Ambler. In fact, we don’t think Lost Lantern would exist if Smooth Ambler hadn’t already built such a strong tradition of sourcing and blending. We follow in their footsteps. Yet Smooth Ambler has also been making their own whiskey for many years, and we are excited to be able to showcase this single cask of their wheated bourbon at cask strength. 

This West Virginia straight bourbon whiskey was distilled on Smooth Ambler’s own column still from a mashbill of 71.5% locally grown yellow corn, 21.5% soft red winter wheat, and 7% malted barley. It was aged in a 53-gallon barrel for 5 years. With toasted almond, white chocolate, and cranberries on the nose, the palate is rich and spicy, with clove, black cherry and deep oak flavors.

Whether you already know and love Smooth Ambler’s West Virginia-distilled whiskies or are just discovering them now, this single cask shows that as with their sourced whiskey and blends, Smooth Ambler is truly on the vanguard of American whiskey.
